THE CALL — Clarion State College, Clarion, Pa. 

April 6, 1963 

Editorially Speaking Campus Views 

Spring has finally arrived at 
Clarion with its fresh air, blue 
skies, fair breezes, sunny days, 
and gentle showers. The students 
are arising from their winter dor- 
mancy into spring's v passion of ac- 

What are we doing to hold up the 
tradition that college students go 
slightly nuts with the coming of 
spring? If you have read recent 
issues of Time, you will see the 
fad now is smashing pianos or 
stuffing people into telephone 
booths. Are we lagging behind in 
the race to gain attention? 

Evidences of renewed vim and 
vigor after the long cold, dreary 
winter months are the crowded 
tennis courts and the students who 
have come out of hibernation and 
are hiking about the campus. 

But what is so violent about 
this? Perhaps we've had our share 
of demonstrations for the year as 

evidenced in the destruction of 
property in the Union and the 
stealing that has been going on 
within the past month. Maybe 
spring came early at Clarion this 
year. It's a good excuse anyway, 
isn't it? 

Here is a really 'way-out' idea 
for the spring-struck college stu- 
dent who feels he wants something 
daring and new with which to cele- 
brate the advent of spring. If we 
really want to be different, why 
don't we try mass studying? Think 
of all the people you'd shock, es- 
pecially yourself! Here is my 
plan. Attend all classes, study ev- 
ery free moment, stay out of the 
Student Union, write term papers 

every weekend, and do extra pro- 
jects. Considering the outcome at 
the end of the semester, maybe 
this isn't such a crazy idea after 
all! At least it's different! 

Campus Post 

Editor, The Call: 

Each issue of your paper does 
not find its way to our home, but 
when one does I read every word 
almost as eagerly as any of the 
students on campus. I think you 
deserve congratulations, but that 
is not the sole purpose of this let- 

When I saw the illustration of 
"What CSC Needs" on page two of 
the March 16th issue, I knew I 
had to write. 

A couple of weeks ago, Bob 
Barker, on Truth or Consequences, 
sent three contestants away on 
Friday with instructions to return 
on Monday with the most unusual 
items they could find. One con- 
testant returned with a worrying 
machine! No kidding! Since I did 
not anticipate an opportunity to 
recommend it to anyone, I didn't 
pay too much attention, but a let- 
ter would get the details if anyone 
is interested. 

The machine in your sketch 
would find acceptance on any 
campus, but it really should be 
supplemented with the worrying 
machine. One would be much in 
demand before exams while the 
other would be more helpful after- 
ward. They really belong together! 

Seriously, I do want to commend 
your entire staff for your paper. 
It is a far cry from the time when 
my staff and I used to cut stencils 
and take turns at the hand-oper- 
ated mimeograph in order to pro- 
duce our monthly college publica- 
tion. I developed a weakness for 
school publications and now read 
them with a critical and apprecia- 
tive eye. 

Have fun while you learn togeth-

Editor, The Call: 

For the past few months we 
have been listening to and issuing 
complaints concerning the "hor- 
rible" lack of communications on 
this campus. Many of us, includ- 
ing members of the faculty and 
administration, have singled this 
out as one of the main ills of the 
campus. A few attempts have been 
made to alleviate the situation, but 
they seem to be wholly inadequate. 

An example of this lack of prop- 
er communications is the criticism 
concerning the halting of the prac- 
tice of cashing checks in the book- 
store. Much of the discontent and 
criticism from the faculty and stu- 
dents could have been avoided if 
they had been properly informed 
of why the change was made. The 
administration might note that 
Clarion has an intelligent student 
body which is generally willing to 
accept a reasonable explanation. 

One of the main means of com- 
munication between students and 
faculty is The Call. Here students 
may present their views and learn 
of campus happenings. The future 
plans of The Call are to provide 
the student body with a four page, 
bi-weekly newspaper. Many of the 
students have expressed the view 
that The Call is inadequate be- 
cause of its size. In reply to the 
people of this opinion, it can only 
be said that the size of The Call 
is governed by the number of 
working members on the staff. If 
there is a desire for the expan- 
sion of The Call, it can only be 
brought about by a proportionate 
increase in the size of the staff. 

In the same manner, we would 
like to see the DAILY BULLETIN 
published through Mr. Truby's of- 
fice. We feel that this is a type of 
communication which should natur- 
ally be closely associated with his 
work. This would also help to less-

ADVISER Mr. David Truby 

The opinions expressed in this 
article are solely those of the writer 
and do not necessarily express the 
opinions of this publication and its 


Bob Doverspike 

Years ago, some wit — probably 
Oscar Wilde, because all clever 
sayings are traced back to him 
sooner or later — made the state- 
ment that money is the root of all 
evil. The damage that this particu- 
lar statement has caused is irre- 
parable. Consider: men do not 
work because money is the root 
of all evil and men who do work 
are taxed because money is the 
root of all evil. 

At any rate, Tom, a college 
friend of mine, decided that he 
could do a stupendous amount of 
good with money. He began his 
campaign on March 15 by writing 
a check which he planned to cash 
at the Student's Book Store. Im- 
agine his chagrin when he was 

en the burden placed on the Dean 
of Students. A paid student execu- 
tive secretary for Mr. Truby's of- 
fice would help him with the pub- 
lication duties. 

Another equally pressing matter 
in student communication is the 
need for a centrally-located bulle- 
tin board. Although we do have 
several very useful bulletin boards, 
they are all designed for a specific 
purpose. We are badly in need of 
an all-purpose bulletin board for 
student use. The new administra- 
tion building is an ideal location 
for such a board. Thanks to the 
efforts on one student who walked 
through the window in front of the 
library, we do have a temporary 
bulletin board. Even if it is just a 
piece of plywood, it has provided 
a place for students to talk to stu- 
dents. We believe it has demon- 
strated its usefulness. If the ad- 
ministration has taken time to edu- 
cate itself concerning this need, 
they might install a decent, two- 
sided bulletin board. This would be 
more useful than another piece of 
glass for someone to walk through. 

It is hoped that the administra- 
tion will decide what it wants con- 
cerning a mailing system. With the 
old mailing system, which was ef- 
ficient and adequate, a person was 
sure that a notice with just a 
name on it would get to the right 
person. This system had proved

Soph, Frosh 
Classes Meet 

On March 28 at 8:15, the com- 
bined meeting of the sophomore 
and freshman classes was held. In 
a class of around 400 students, a 
grand total of 11 were present. Al- 
so the freshmen made a fine show- 
ing. With a class of about the 
same number, there were 7 mem- 
bers present. It is evident now how 
interested the students of Clarion 
State are in their class affairs. We 
are always hearing such common 
complaints as, "There's nothing to 
do here on weekends, why doesn't 
our class do something?" and other 
such discussion. The subject of our 
class meeting was to discuss fu- 
ture plans for the Spring Carnival 
in April. The Spring Carnival will 
take up a whole weekend. Other 
items of importance were also dis- 
cussed as well as possible with a 
representation of eighteen com- 

told that the Book Store could not 
cash checks! At first he thought 
that the old saying was true. Af- 
ter all, the college was attempting 
to deprive him of money, and, 
since his parents had always tried 
to keep evil away from him and 
his attitude toward the school was 
of a filial nature, the association 
was natural. Upon inquiring, how- 
ever, he was told that the Book 
Store couldn't cash checks because 
the state auditors felt that the 
handling of money was evil. 

Undaunted by failure, our mod- 
ern Quixote carried his campaign 
to the business section of town. His 
first stop was the First Seneca 
Bank. Only those of you who have 
been subjected to apartment raids 
can appreciate the ordeal that Tom 
went through. He was scrutinized; 
he was questioned; his Dun and 
Bradstreet report was examined; 
and his check was refused. The 
same routine was given him at 
two drug stores, three grocery 
stores, and one garage. 

Despondent but not defeated, he 
had one last hope, the Modern 
Diner. This hope, however, was al- 
so dashed to the ground because 
55 other students — people inter- 
ested in money, not truth — being 
turned down by our state auditors, 
had already cashed checks there. 
"Verily," thought he, "the old 
saying must be true. Money is the 
root of all evil." 

But no. He had an idea. Quickly 
he ran home and borrowed an 
abundance of costume jewel- 
ry from his landlady; eagerly he 
walked to Toby Bridge; (The cost 
of truth is quite high.) and vorac- 
iously he entered into negotiations 
with the leader of the Cornplanter 
Indians, displaced from Kinzua. Af- 
ter a suitable amount of haggling, 
Tom purchased Gamma Rock from 
the Indian chief with costume 
jewelry equivalent to $37.50. There 
Tom sits to this day, muttering 
"Beware the Ides of March" and 
doing good. He kills water snakes 
with a six-foot pole. 

Student Defends 
Suitcase College 

There have been several articles 
included in the last few editions 
of The Call with reference to our 
"suitcase college." These articles 
were written in a "con" attitude. 

The students at Clarion College 
do return home for weekend and 
the college population does thin 
out to a noticeable degree, but 
there are many good reasons for 
this continuous occurrence. A large 
number of students occupy part- 
time jobs at home or elsewhere 
without which their week-day at- 
tendance at the college would not 
be possible. Other home responsi- 
bilities could foster more chances 
of staying for weekends, also. 
Therefore, when these people go, 
other students who are fortunate 
enough to live reasonably close are 
attracted to their famines. 

This idea of leaving the college 
for just a few days does not reflect 
to any great extent on the college 
in regard to lack of social affairs. 
Clarion provides ample means by 
Saturday night dances and Sunday 
night movies. 

A matter such as this reputation 
of the college in regard to a "suit- 
case college" is only as strong as 
the emphasis and importance the 
students themselves place on it. 
Therefore, if we continue to pub- 
lish this idea, placing more and 
more accent on it, news of us will 
spread at a great rate. As long as 
the students keep up their scholas- 
tic standings and do not lose in- 
terest in the support of our col- 
lege, I don't feel that there is any 
need to urge their presence on 
weekend by publishing the number 
of students accounted for on these 
weekends at Clarion State College.

Mouse Mouths Off 

hi gang, 

a few weeks ago i pattered over to 
the union . . . well, you can talk 
about mouse dirt all you want, but 
my house was never as dirty as it 
was. the closing came at a good 
time, it sure needed a spring 

hope they never fix the glass in 
the doorway of my home, they will 
take away the only bulletin board 
for students, the situation needs to 
be checked into. 

speaking of checks, the book- 
store really meets the student's 
needs, just like that — no more 
cashing of checks, the students 
were never told a reason or cause 
for this move, some decision higher 
up! the town banks certainly are 
not favoring the move, try and get 
a 30 dollar check cashed, i get 
my pay in cheese, so i'm safe. 

glad to hear our president's 
views on politics from harrisburg 
recently, hope he keeps in touch 
with his senators at home, we have 
a new group now, and we all hope 
to see some action soon, good luck, 
while back in the stacks, i over- 
heard that the food committee was 
receiving some excellent sugges- 
tions from the student body and 
hope to improve the service and 
eliminate the grave danger the 
students face. 

i would be pleased if the admin- 
istration would build ramps over 
the great "lakes" that form at the 
entrances of my home, with these 
spring rains, i'm ordering a scuba 
outfit, had some weekend guests 
down and was showing them 
around, the flower beds at my 
main entrance are good garbage 
receptacles, and the mud lawn 
didn't help much either, they 
roared at the toothpick size flag- 
pole, check the architect's draw- 
ing for a real view of what my 
home is supposed to look like. 

attention students: you are now 
under the jurisdiction of the penn 
state handbook, which according to 
an administration has become our 
new "bible", now maybe they'll 
keep my house open longer, like 
they do at state. 

students take so much interest 
in everything, i'm going to move 
away, the old mansion won't be 
the same, but i have spring fever, 
a new neighbor has moved in, and 
will keep the squeek alive, a word 
of advice to him, a big smiling cat 
lives in egbert. watch out for him. 
he purrs sweetly, but has very 
sharp claws. 

so long,

Sophomore Gass Presents 
Annual Spring Carnival 

The Class of 1965 is again pre- 
senting its annual Spring Carnival 
on May 26 and 27. This year the 
Freshman Class will also assist in 
sponsoring the carnival. 

The site of most of the carnival 
will be on the football field. Booths 
sponsored by the college and the 
community will provide fun and 
entertainment for all. Some of 
these booths will feature miniature 
golf, sketches and silhouette, darts, 
and bean-bag throws. Prizes will 
be awarded to the most popular 

National Library

and to the most ingenious booths. 
Carnival booths will officially open 
on the football field at 6:30 p.m. 
Friday, April 26, and remain open 
until 11 p.m. that evening. A rec- 
ord hop, with Bob Avery as disc 
jockey, is also scheduled for Fri- 
day evening at 8:30 p.m. At 12 
noon, Saturday, the carnival booths 
re-open. At 7 p.m. the booths will 
close in order to prepare for the 
closing event of the carnival— a 
semi-formal dance to the music of 
Joe Alese. The dance will begin 
at 8:30 p.m. A King and Queen of 
the Spring Carnival, elected by the 
student body, will be crowned at 
10 p.m. The Spring Carnival will 
officially close at 11:30 with the 
end of the dance.

Interesting Display 
Of Novelty Items 

It is worth a visit to the Book 
Store just to browse around. One 
of the interesting items is the at- 
tractively displayed showcase with 
the various novelty items. Such 
things as piggy banks, beautiful 
new glassware and ash trays with 
the Clarion State College seal in 
full view; plastic playing cards

and browse!!! 

Many people have food idiosyn- 
crasies which they slavishly fol- 

Some maintain that every week 
in a college library is library week 
and that there is no need to ob- 
serve any special week. One pur- 
pose of the week is to focus at- 
tention on all kinds of libraries, on 
their needs and how they can be 
improved. Another purpose is to 
emphasize the importance of read- 
ing and the value of developing a 
life-long interest in reading. With 
such goals it seems that National 
Library Week should be observed, 
not only by the college library, but 
by everyone on the campus. 

The first slogan in 1958 was: 
"Wake up and read!" Others have 
been: "For a better-read, better- 
informed America", "Read and 
watch your world grow". The 
theme this year is: "Read: the 
fifth freedom . . . enjoy it!"

Student Expresses Opinions 
On Thomas Hardy Philosophy 

Many of us college students are 
acquainted with the novels of 
Thomas Hardy. "The Return of 
the Native," "The Mayor of Cas- 
terbridge," "Far From the Mad- 
dening Crowd," and "Jude the 
Obscure" are four of Hardy's nov- 
els which seem to be popular on 
this campus. Those who have read 
one or more of these know that 
Hardy expresses the same philo- 
sophy in all his works. His char- 
acters usually suffer defeat or 
death. The reader understands the 
why of this only if he understands 
the philosophy of Hardy. 

Thomas Hardy, himself, was an 
interesting man. He loved life and 
everything living. Knowing this, it 
seems ironical that his philosophy 
would be concerned with the crush- 
ing defeat of man and his am- 
bitions by the universe. Hardy's 
philosophy is based on the belief 
that man's life is determined at 
birth; therefore, the universe is in- 
different to man's desires and as- 
pirations. Man aspires and nature 
crushes and takes away. The per- 
son who becomes stoic and ac- 
cepts his planned course of life is 
the truly happy person. In Hardy 
novels, this stoic person was re- 
presented by the peasant who lived 
close to the soil and lived an un- 
eventful life. The person who suf- 
fers pain is the one who is sensi- 
tive and aspiring. There is no mo- 
rality in Hardy because man has 
no choice. 

Jude Fawley, the main character 

in "Jude the Obscure," is a typical 
Hardy character. Jude suffered be- 
cause he aspired too high. He was

of novelty items. The display is one of the most unique 
presentations ever shown at the library. 

only a stone mason, yet he desired 
to be a high church official and to 
attend a university. He spent his 
life attempting to achieve this 
goal, but the nearest he came to 
a university was in repairing the 
masonry of the old buildings. His 
problems were innumerable. Jude 
never really possessed a happy 
family life. Poverty, illness, and 
death were common. In referring to 
his problems, Jude said, "If only 
someone would help, but then, no- 
body ever does." 

Hardy is undoubtedly a fatalist 
in his philosophy. He says life is 
something we have to put up with 
or endure. Such an idea is hard to 
accept when I and those around 
me all seem to be enjoying and 
benefiting from life. Today we 
praise and encourage aspiring peo- 
ple. To be able to rise above your 
environment is an indication of a 
successful individual. To me, Har- 
dy is denying the fact that man has 
a free will when he states man has 
no choice in life.

itself able to meet the needs of 
the school. Now, with the new more 
efficient (?) mailing system, one 
is never sure what will happen to 
their mail. First is required an ad- 
dress which has to be more com- 
plete than the one for the govern- 
ment postal system. Then it may 
be sent only to be returned two 
weeks later, not for insufficient 
postage, but for having the wrong 
box number. Our mailing system 
is truly efficient and adequate(?). 
The new mailing system is defi- 
nately not more economical than 
the old. Before, a student was paid 
$30 a month to distribute the mail 
to the off-campus students' mail 
boxes. Now each organization that 
does any mailing must have funds 
alloted for mailing. Also there are 
over one thousand mail boxes 
which could be used to save money 
and would be more convenient for 
organizations in contacting stu- 

In this article we have tried to 
point out some of the inadequacies 
and fallacies of the communica- 
tion system on this campus. We 
have also proposed some possible 
solutions for the student body and 
faculty to consider with the hope 
that they will express to the ad- 
ministration a desire for a work- 
able solution in the near future. 

CSC Chosen to Participate 
In Cooperative Program 

The Pennsylvania State Employ- 
ment Service has chosen Clarion 
State College as the second college 
in the state to develop an experi- 
mental program of year around 
student placement for vacation 

"This cooperative program be- 
tween the state employment ser- 
vice and the Dean of Men's Of- 
fice will furnish aid to students 
through summer, Christmas, and 
Easter vacation positions," stated 
Dr. James King, dean of men. Dr. 
King met with members of the 
state employment service to get 
the program underway. 

Summaries of job opportunities 
are available in the social studies 
office, second floor, New Admini- 
stration Building. They list the 
type of occupation and potential 
available in each district of the 

Students can fill out an employ- 
ment card for positions in their 
home area or in any other local- 
ity where they prefer work other 
than counseling. A special form is 
available for camp positions which 
is processed at the local employ- 
ment office and sent to the Poco- 
nos and other camp areas. 

As this program develops, it will 
cover employment in many phases 
of industry. At present, however, 
approximately 75 per cent of all 
jobs will be offered in resort ar- 
eas and summer camps. This in- 
cludes secretarial staffs. 

Camp counselors should be 19 
years of age with at least one year 
of college. 

Dr. King expects to have about 
200 or 300 students involved in this

Goya and Matteo 
Give Unique 
Performance Here 

Spanish dance artists, Goya and 
Matteo, presented "World of Danc- 
ing" on April 2 at 8 p.m. in the 
college chapel. Their performance 
was given in connection with the 
Clarion Students' Association Con- 
cert-Lecture Series. 

Both Goya and Matteo are mast- 
ers of Spanish music. Miss Goya 

appeared for three years with the* 
Jose Greco Spanish Ballet Com- 
pany, and Matteo recently wrote a 
book on castanets. They have per- 
formed from Western Europe to 
Latin America and are accomplish- 
ed in dances of over 18 countries.

First in order is large thanks 
from the brothers of Theta Chi 
to the ZTA's for a wonderful time 
at our recent get-together. You 
are a swinging bunch. The theme 
of this part was the "Roaring 
20's". Our new pledge class looks 
very promising. The brothers wish 
to welcome these men: Bob Al- 
bert, Bob Baumann, John Bellini, 
Paul Elliot, Nelson Enos, Ron

pledge projects include visits to 
Allegheny and Penn State chap- 
ters. Current plans for improve- 
ments to our house are recement- 
ing a portion of the basement and 
installation of a pool table and 

ping-pong table. Our bowling team 
is doing quite well in the intra- 
mural competition. Individual hon- 
ors go to Brother Malacarne for 
high score, and to Brothers Mala- 
carne, Galbreath, Defillippi, and 
Bowser for top four bowlers out of 
five. Our team also has the high 
three game series. Intra-fraternity 
bowling every Sunday evening is 
moving along. Winners in order 
are the Budweisers, Schmidts, 
Genesees, and Rolling Rocks. Big 
dates for this spring are the an- 
nual Dream Girl Banquet, and the 
annual "Corral" held at the Uni- 
versity of Akron. We will honor 
our Dream Girl, Miss Kathy Ben- 
ish, at the dinner-dance. Site of 

the festivities is the Cross Creek 
Country Club. The Spring "Corral" 
is the gathering of Region 6 of 
Theta Chi. Chapters attending are 
from Akron (host chapter), 
Waynesburg, Penn State, Indiana, 
Cincinatti, Allegheny, Youngstown, 
and Clarion. It should be a blast! 

The members of Theta Xi would 
like to welcome our new pledge 
class. They are Bill Ewing, John 
Stanton, Larry Miller, John Ma- 
cur a, John Romisher, Larry Kraft, 
John Ryan, Ed Mills. They have 
elected Bill Ewing as their pledge 
class president. Our "Roaring 
20's" party on March 23, was a 
great success. The brothers have 
recently redecorated a room in our 
house as a reading room. We have 
also put a piano in this room. We 
have fixed up the basement so we 
can use it for parties. We are cur- 
rently making plans for our spring

Students to Study 
In Spain and France 

Anyone interested in going to 
Spain, France, or Germany for a 
semester of accredited college 
work can go if he is in an advanc- 
ed language course and gets the 
recommendation of Dr. Bays. 

There are four different "Study 
in a Foreign Country Programs." 
They include: (1) The Pennsyl- 
vania-Valladolid Study in Spain, 
sponsored by Indiana State College 
for a period of six months, (2) Jun- 
ior year in Bescanca, France, 
sponsored by West Chester State 
College, in which Jim Johnston, 
Lucille Thommasone, Janet Rabold, 
and Sherry Koch are participating, 
(3) Junior year at Morburg, Ger- 
many, sponsored by Millersville 
State College, and (4) Summer 
School Program, Universidad Inter- 
amencana, Saltillo, Mexico, spon- 
sored by Kutztown State College. 

We are proud to announce that 
four of our students are going to 
Spain this summer. They are Dick 
Bevcvino, Frank Burrows, F a y e 
Daniels, and Bill McConnaughey. 
They are a part of a total of 
twenty participants, 13 from Indi- 
ana State College, and three from 
all the other state colleges. Indiana 

State College is sponsoring this 
program. The original quota of 25 
was not met. President Pratt, of 
Indiana, has subsidized these 20 
students, making it unnecessary 
for them to pay more. 

Participants in this program will 
report to Indiana campus on June 
4 and will leave immediately, sail- 
ing to Lisbon, Portugal, then pro- 
ceeding by train to Valladolid, 
where they will arrive June 12 or 

Their classes include Theory of 
Castilian Language, Practice in 
Conversational Spanish, lectures 
covering Spanish Culture and Civil- 
ization, and organized excursions. 
Each student is urged to use Span- 
ish at all times and carry both 
an English to Spanish dictionary 
and a Spanish to English diction- 
ary. The participants will receive 
thirty credits toward graduation or 
permanent certification. 

Dr. Bays has said of the coming 
tour, "I am sure it will benefit 
all who participate. I hope for suc- 
cess this year and better response 
next year so this program may be 
carried on." 

Wayne Crosby Receives 
Assistantship to Ohio U. 

Senior Wayne H. Crosby has been awarded an assistant- 
ship leading to the M. S. degree in Zoology at Ohio University,

Wayne's plans for the summer 
are not quite certain, but with 
his serving as a camp counsellor 
at Westminster Highlands near 
Emlenton as a possibility. He will 
leave in mid-September for a pre- 
liminary meeting with the Science 
Faculty at Athens. After gradu-

He then gets into a spot where he 
has to commit a real do-it-yourself 
murder. His wife, Nell, played by 
Carol McDonald, has become the 
target of a blackmailer. Harlow 
Edison, portrayed by Tony Szym- 
koniak, is District Attorney. No- 
body can get away with blackmail- 
ing Mrs. Nash for such a girlish 
peccadello, so her husband, Elliot, 
has to silence the so-and-so with 
his six-shooter and then secret the 
stiff. Nell has just purchased a 
gazebo at an auction and it is 
being installed in her and Elliot's 
backyard. The best place for El- 
liot to plant the corpse of the 
blackmailer is in the fresh con- 
crete foundation of this filigreed 
breezeway. It isn't long, though, 
before the body turns up its toes 
again on the livingroom rug and El-

THE CALL — Clarion State College, Clarion, Pa. 

Campus Posf 

Editor, The Call: 

In a recent issue of The Call, 
a writer of a "letter to the editor." 
stated that he was uneasy because 
of "extreme" examples of Ameri- 
can patriotism, which often appear- 
ed to be founded on hate for the 
other side rather than self-respect, 
country expounding on brutal 
satanic Soviet slavery. 

One cannot help wondering why 
an American who suffered inhu- 
man and brutal treatment in So- 
viet slavery should not be per- 
mitted or even encouraged to tell 
the truth to the rest of the world. 
Why don't we wish to hear it our- 
selves or wish others to hear it? 
Why should we be so "protective" 
to the "other side"? If it has com- 
mitted atrocities, shouldn't the rest 
of the world know? Just who is 
this "other side"? Is it not the 
Communists who are our enemies? 
If the Communists are not our 
enemies, who are our enemies? 
What favors have they shown us or 
the rest of the world recently that 
we should be so "polite" that we 
don't wish to tell the truth about 
them? Can you respect those who 
have treated you as a slave? If 
anyone doubts that John Noble ex- 
perienced nine years in brutal So- 
viet slavery, let him check with 
former President Eisenhower who 
had to make three or four de- 
mands that John Noble, an Ameri- 
can prisoner, be released before 
the Communists would admit that 
they had such a person. Mr. Noble 
was released only at the insistence 
of former President Eisenhower. 

Shall we say then that a man 
who spent nine years in slavery 
knows nothing of life behind the 
iron curtain? If he does not 
know anything about it, who does? 
Do those whom the Communists 
take on special two week "red 
carpet" tours know more about it? 
A fact that few Americans know 
is that 5,000 American soldiers who 
were allied with the Russians in 
World War II are still suffering as 
prisoners behind the iron curtain. 
They went to fight for the libera- 
tions of Russia from Germany, and 
so they are rewarded. Our State 
Department does not wish to put 

pressure on the Communists be- 
cause it does not wish to "em- 
barrass" them. Fifteen to forty 
million people of all nationalities 
are reported to be slaves behind 
the iron curtain. The United 
Nations is supposed to prevent ag- 
gression. If it is so "ambitious" 
in working for a peaceful and free 
world, the freedom of these slaves 
might be a worthy project. Even 
since the formation of the United 
Nations, the world has never known 
a time when there was so much 
slavery as there is at the present 
time, yet we call our world highly 

Is it "extreme American patriot- 
ism" to demand the freedom of 
our fellow Americans? One hun- 
dred years ago we fought a war 
in America to free the slaves, yet 
at present these 5,000 Americans 
are in slavery and we say noth- 
ing—we write no letters to our 
congressmen or State Department. 
The United States Army can be 
called to Oxford, Mississippi, to 
demand civil rights, but what 
Army or State Department is 
fighting as hard for our 5,000 
soldiers in slavery? Are they not 
Americans? We can send food and 
medicines to Cuba to free Cuban 
citizens, but we are strangely si- 
lent about our own prisoners of 
war. Perhaps we are afraid of be- 
ing called "extreme" patriots. 

If you were a prisoner in brutal 
Soviet slavery, wouldn't you 
want gentlemen to go about the 
country reminding the people a- 
bout your condition? What has hap- 
pened to us who say we are free- 
dom-loving people, that we don't 
protest for our own countrymen 
who are in slavery? What has hap- 
pened to our American Govern- 
ment which is pledged to come to 
the aid of any citizen who is en- 
dangered in a foreign land? Why 
shouldn't a man who has suffered 
in slavery be encouraged to tell 
the truth? If one of us has suf- 
fered, wouldn't we want it told? 
Just what are one's reasons for 
not wanting such men to tell the 



I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT . . . This letter says nothing 
about our scholastic rating but gives us a double 'A' on our

Sound Thinking: 
Essence of Intellect 


"I don't believe this place is 
happening." "God, why did I ever 
choose Clarion?" "This place is 
for the birds." 

The aforementioned are but a 
few of the many generalizations 
made by some of the students who 
attend Clarion State College. I am 
of the opinion that these illogically 
thought-out declarations are repre- 
sentative of an unthinking minor- 
ity who, if not stopped, will soon 
establish a majority concensus of 
their beliefs about this institution. 

Perhaps a brief explanation of 
what causes a person to complain 
would be in accordance with work- 
ing towards the annihilation of the 
evil from the campus. 

Such things as social insecurity, 
poor scholastic achievement, finan- 
cial incapacitation, and lack of the 
acceptance of one's self are a few 
of the basic reasons why people 
complain and openly denounce 
their environment. 

Nevertheless, it is important that 
the individual not lose, sight of the 

fact that problems do exist in life 
and that they are not unique to 
him alone. The intelligent person 
will recognize his problem or prob- 
lems and procede to make adjust- 
ments according to his own ca- 

One of the greatest philosophers 
of all times, Socrates made this 
statement, "The unexamined life 
is not worth living." This man be- 
lieved that in order to understand 
one's relationship to his environ- 
ment he must first understand him- 
self. This is the primary step to 
be taken by those in the minority 
and majority group. 

I have asserted that the com- 
plainers are in the minority. It 
will be the responsibility of t h e 
majority to evaluate justly and 
with logical thought those general- 
izations with which we are confront- 
ed. Question the individual who 
makes a statement such as "I hate 
this place." Then determine the val- 
idity of his reasoning. 

In conclusion, I shall generalize 
and say, "Sound thinking is the 
essence of intellect." Therefore, 
think before you speak, especially 
when your expression of opinion 
may serve to prejudice a person 
who has not developed his capac- 
ity to evaluate what he hears. The 
chronic complainer, if not given 
reinforcement, will cease such be- 

'Intellectuals' Modify 
Ring Around The Rosey 


Answer: "Of course not. But 
can you prove that one does exist? 
Question: "How do I know that I 
exist?" Answer: "That's a rather 
stupid question to pose after you've 
just wolfed down a huge plate of 
French fries, three hamburgers 
with mayonnaise and pickle, and 
gurgled down three cups of cof- 
fee." Statement: "I say flatly that 
the human is not basically an emo- 
tional being." Counter-question: "If 
that is so, then why are you get- 
ting so excited?" Question: "But 
how do you know that's a chair?" 
Answer: "Because I'm sitting on 
it, of course." Statement: "I'm 
Platonic." Counter-statement: 
"Bully for you! I'm Aristotelian." 

And so on, 'round and 'round, 
endlessly, until the participants 
land on their mindless bottoms in 
some stupid intellectual quagmire. 

Well, am I decrying "Intellect- 
ual Round?" Certainly not! It can 

When I was a flaxen-haired, blue- 
eyed little boy, my neighborhood 
girl pals and boy pals used to 
play a game called "Ring Around 
the Rosey." We would find a 
smooth, soft place on the grass, 
join hands, form a ragged circle, 
and begin moving 'round and 
'round while chanting a rhyme 
that goes like this. 
"Ring around the rosey, 
Pocketful of posey, 
Ashes, ashes, 
All fall down." 

And on the "all fall down," down 
we went, the boys dumping glee- 
fully down on the seat of their 
sturdy corduroy knickers, the girls 
whirling gracefully down in a col- 
orful flurry of whirling skirts and 
lacey panties (little girls wore 
play dresses in those days). 
Now, in the event I should be 

accused of pining away for the 

good old days, let me say that I 

still engage in an occasional game 

of "Ring Around the Rosey." And 

so do you. In fact, this game is 

quite a fashionable one on campus- Sigma Tau Gamma 

es throughout the United States, 

and I'm not excluding Harvard, 

Princeton, and Yale, and I'll bet 

that it is played with gleeful vigor 

at England's Oxford and Cam- 
bridge. Of course, our game of 

"Ring Around the Rosey" is a bit 

more sophisticated, in fact so much 

more so, that I should have to 

make a slight modification in the 


"Ring around the rosey, 

Pocketful o' philosophy, 

Cliches, cliches, 

All fall down!" 
What am I talking about? The 

endless game of "Intellectual 

Round" that we engage in, of 

course. We don't join hands or 

move about in a circle; we sit at 

tables in the Union or the Modern 

Diner. And the round begins.

God doesn't exist?"

Clarion State 
Hosts District 

Clarion State College Library, 
designated as a State District Li- 
brary Center in 1962, was host to 
the district librarians on Wednes- 
day, April 17th. 

Clarion State College Library 
provides information and refer- 
ence service to the people in Clar- 
ion, Jefferson, Venango Counties 
and Sandy Township, including Du- 
Bois in Clearfiejd County. Books 
may be borrowed through the local 
libraries on inter-library loan. This 
means books are lent through local 
libraries not directly to individuals. 

The hours the library is open 

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, 
Friday —7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 
6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

Thursday —7:45 a.m. to 9:45 

Saturday —8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Sunday —2 p.m. to 5 p.m. 

Mr. Joseph Myers of the Library 
Development Division of the Penn- 
sylvania State Library attended 
the meeting and spoke on finan- 
cial matters affecting the local li- 

Many distinguished and notable 
books for children published in the 
last two years were displayed for 
the librarians to examine. Mrs. 
Butler of the Clarion staff talked 
about several of the books and 
discussed standards in selecting 
books for children. 

Attending the meeting were: 
Miss Sarah Allen, Mrs. Margaret 
Beers, Mrs. Ann Bradley, Clarion; 
Mrs. Helen McEnteer, DuBois; 
Mrs. Isabelle Beers, Mrs. Jack 
Dillman, Franklin; Mrs. Pauline 
Clover, Mrs. David Weibel, Mrs. 
M. Gene Master, Knox; Mrs. Agnes 
Martin, Mrs. Jane Miller, Mrs. 
Sloan, New Bethlehem; Mrs. Ber- 
nice W. McElhattan, Oil City. Miss 
Martha Stewart, chairman on ar- 
rangements, presided. 

The Library Code, which was 
passed by the Legislature in 1961, 
provides for district and regional 
libraries to provide library service 
beyond that given by local librar- 

be good exercise. But it does be- 
come rather ludicrous at times. 
We children never played our 
"Ring Around the Rosey" more 
than five times before we began 
to devise variations on its theme. 
And perhaps that's what is needed 
in our more advanced game— more 
than a pocketful of philosophy, 
more than cliches, more variation 
in thought, more creative, individ- 
ual ideas.

Mouse Mouths Off A****-** 

hi everyone, 

i finally got settled down in my 
new home after mike moved, the 
family and i have only been here 
a couple of days and we have 
loads of news already, we mice are 
really having a rough time, some- 
one doesn't like us. the mainten- 
ence men are hunting all over for 
us. i sure understand why mike 
left, sorry but i don't scare easy. 

a student checking system will 
go into effect within a couple of 
weeks, glad i didn't have to wait 
all this time to get my cheese 
check cashed. 

the student union is being in- 
vestigated to find out if it needs 
a clock and a less expensive juke 
box. bureaucracy is in action a- 

i am glad that i am a mouse, 
i can go under the fence around 
the trench warfare, it is fine to 
have the doors to music hall lock 
to keep the steps clean. 

it is just too bad that a fire haz- 
ard had to be created, well it does 
keep prexy's steps nice and clean. 

Studio Players 
Will Portray 
Sartre's Play 

Studio Players will present Jean- 
Paul Sartre's "No Exit" in the 
college chapel on May 9 and 10. 

This play, directed by Donald 
Gersztoff, includes four characters. 
Inez is played by Elaine Noble, 
and Estelle by Pat Gersztoff. 
Cradeau is portrayed by Bob Cope- 
land, and the Bell Boy by John 

"No Exit" expresses Sartre's 
existentialistic philosophy as it 
shows three people trapped in a 
peculiar hell. Inez, a lesbian; Es- 
telle, a nymphomaniac, and Crad- 
eau, a coward, are locked in a 
room which has no exit. The win- 
dows are blocked with bricks, the 
electric lights are always on, and 
there are no mirrors. The torture 
of this hell is not one of fire, but 
one of truth. Each character is 
eventually stripped of his pre- 
tenses, and his darkest deeds are 
made known. 

A discussion led by Mr. Takei 
will follow the performance, and 
the audience will be invited to par- 
ticipate. As before, refreshments 
will be served between the per- 
formance and the discussion. 

Symphony Plays 
2nd Concert Here 

Would you be interested in hear- 
ing some good music? The Clarion 
State College Area Symphony, di- 
rected by Professor Edward Ron- 
cone, is your answer. The pro- 
gram will be presented Sunday, 
April 28, at 8 p.m. in the college 
chapel. The program consists of 
Symphony No. 1 by Beethoven, 
Carmen, First Suite by Bizet, and 
Symphony No. 2 by Vittorio Gian- 

The symphony is another event 
sponsored by the Music Depart- 
ment and the Students' Associa- 
tion. It is part of the Concert 
and Lecture Series. 

This is the first year of existence 
for the Clarion State College Area 
Symphony. The symphony consists 
of 45 members, including students 
and faculty of Clarion State camp- 
us, talented high school students 
from the area, and a few profes- 
sional people from Pittsburgh. 
Their only other performance was 
The Creation by Haydn last De- 

hope that prexy has a pleasant 
trip to england. 

good luck to circle k, i am ex- 
changing all my cheese for silver 


attention all faculty: if y o u r 
children act like animals find a 
leash for them, throwing mud at 
the front of the library sure adds 
to the school's appearance. 

it is budget time again, and now 
the faculty is buttering up the stu- 
dent senators, hope that they use 
enough butter to get their pet bud- 
get passed. 

i noticed that the students final- 
ly got pre-registration, too bad 
they won't be able to choose pro- 
fessors along with subjects, i 
wouldn't want to put up with some- 
one i didn't like for eighteen 
weeks, if something is going to 
be done let's do it right. 

it is really good to be at a fine 
school like clarion, i hope to be 
here for at least a couple of en- 
joyable years. 


Careless Actions 
Can Destroy Good 
Public Relations 

Misguided and thoughtless ac- 
tions handicap good public rela- 
tions. Recently in a large univer- 
sity a few fraternity men and wo- 
men students were involved in vio- 
lation of college rules governing 
social conduct. Instead of immed- 
iately reporting this to their na- 
tional office, which usually can 
give helpful advice, the matter 
was hushed up by fraternity alumni 
and kept a local "secret" and 
the Dean also got the "run-a- 

This is irresponsible conduct. 
If IFC and alumm* officers will 
bring the full light to bear on such 
situations and promptly penalize 
those responsible, fraternities will 
benefit greatly. Also undergradu- 
ate fraternity men will recognize 
that standards of acceptable con- 
duct must be observed if frater- 
nities are to be successful in up- 
grading their public image. 

To Participate 
On Art Panel 

Mr. Francis Baptist, assistant 
professor in the art department, 
has been invited to participate on 
a panel sponsored by the Museum 
of Modern Art. 

This panel, composed of four 
members, will be presented May 4 
at the Museum of Modern Art in 
New York as part of the confer- 
ence of the National Committee on 
Art Education. The director of the 
conference is Victor D'Amico, and 
the chairman of the panel is Dr. 
Kenneth Weinbrunner, both o f 
whom are well known in the field 
of modern art. 

Each panel member must pre- 
sent a paper which pertains to the 
theme of the conference, "Art and 
Human Spirit," before an audience 
gathered from the whole United 
States. Since the conference deals 
with the recent developments in 
audio visual education as they re- 
late to art education, Mr. Baptist 
is writing his paper on "An Ex- 
perimental Self-Teaching Device 
Related to Painting." Here he in- 
vestigates the possibility of stu- 
dents' teaching themselves and 
being stimulated by a nonverbal 
method. After the four papers are 
presented, the audience will be 
given a chance to take part in a 
discussion of the concepts present- 

Mr. Baptist expressed his 
thoughts about being invited to par- 
ticipate in this way: "I appreci- 
ate the privilege of being associ- 
ated with this conference because 
of the profound Influence these con- 
ferences have on the education of 
the country." 

A few inches over the center 
line, a few miles per hour over 
the safe driving speed, a right or 
left turn a few seconds too soon 
without signal, has ended many a 
promising career. Any of these 
mistakes can crush out a life in 
an instant. Reading a fatal acci- 
dent in the newspapers may mean 
little to you, but in some home 
they are a real tragedy. 

Uncle of Clarion Student 
Presents Book to Library 

Lieutenant Colonel William H. 
Rankin of the United States Ma- 
rine Corp has presented a book 
entitled "The Man Who Rode the 
Thunder" to the Clarion State 
College Library. 

Lt. Col. Rankin is the uncle of 
Tom Rankin, who is a freshman 
attending the college.

Students Follow New 
College Craze, 'Parakiting' 

That would not be the advice 
that three college men would give 
you. After much makeshift prepar- 
ation the boys took to the air in a 
haphazard fashion last Sunday af- 
ternoon. Beforehand, they had 
cut numerous panels out of t h e 
chute to provide the necessary lift- 
ing power. A rope about 150 feet 
long was hand wound and bridals 
were also hand made. The method 
was simple. They strapped them- 
selves into the chute and tied the 
chute behind a car. As the car 
sped down the air strip the boy 
would run until airborne. The 
flight was said to be the most en- 
joyable ride imaginable but the 

landings were very tricky. This 
sport has been done before out in 
California and was aptly called 
"para kiting." The flier is to reach 
an altitude half the height of the 
rope. Due to insufficient automo- 
tive power the boys got only about 
45 feet up. The boys were Rick 
Mclntyre, Tony Remick, and Joe 

They feel the landings, which 
were basically on their stomachs 
and backs and included being drag- 
ged for close to 100 feet, was the 
only hazardous portion of the 
flight. Will they do it again? Only 
on a bet, or with better equip- 

Cherry Blossom 
Fantasv Theme 
Of Formal 

Cherry Blossom Fantasy will be 
the theme for the Spring Formal 
on Saturday, May 11. Music and 
entertainment will be provided by 
the Clarion State College Dance 
Band. The dance will be formal, 
and it will begin at 9 p.m. in Har- 
vey Gymnasium. 

The Student Union will be deco- 
rated to create a club atmosphere. 
It will be open only to those stu- 
dents who attend the dance in the 
proper attire. 

Lt. Col. Rankin has written a 
dedication note to the students of 
Clarion State College: "To the stu- 
dents of Clarion State College, with 
best wishes for the future— it will 
be better if you are mentally pre- 
pared and physically fit to meet 

Lt. Col. Rankin's book is a de- 
tailed account of how he was 
forced to bail out of a F-8 U Cru- 
sader Jet Figher over the Carolina 
coast at almost fifty thousand feet 
without special pressure equip- 
ment. How, after dropping seven 
miles in a free fall, he plunged 
into the grip of a violent storm 
inferno of turbulence, rain, hail, 
thunder and lightning, such as no 
man had ever seen before. For the 
next incredible forty minutes Lt. 
Col. Rankin was an air born cap- 
tive of the storm, and his eventual 
survival was against overwhelming 

"The Man Who Rode the Thun-

against terrifying forces of nature 
— the story of a man who survived 
because he had lived and trained 
in the true tradition of the United

THE SILHOUETTES play their renditions of the different 
types of jazz. The concert was played in the Student Union.

Clarion Golden Eagles 
Lose Doubleheader To 
Lock Haven Bald Eagles 

The Clarion State College Golden 
Eagle baseball team was defeated 
twice last Saturday by the Lock 
Haven State Bald Eagles, 3-2 and 
4-3. Clarion's chances of winning 
the Western Pennsylvania State 
College Conference title suffered a 
severe blow as the Bald Eagles 
came from behind in both games 
to turn defeat into victory. Poor 
fielding by Clarion played an im- 
portant part in the victories by 
Lock Haven. 

In the opener Clarion scored a 
run in the first inning when Ed 
Joyce singled, advanced to second 
on a passed ball, went to third on 
a sacrifice bunt, and scored when 
Jim Racchini hit a long flyball 
to centerfield. Clarion added anoth- 
er run in the third inning on a 
double by Alex Murynak, and a 
single by Dave Griffin. Clarion 
pitcher Whitey Rafalko had a three 
hitter going into the sixth inning 
when Lock Haven's Don Orwig 
started the trouble with a single 
to center, Duttry walked, J i m 
Reeser doubled to left scoring Or- 
wig and Duttry. The Bald Eagles 
scored the winning run in the sev- 
enth inning when Bill Journey sin- 
gled, was sacrificed to second, and 
scored when Clarion shortstop Jim 
Racchini threw wild passed first 
The second game was a repeat of 

the first, with Clarion leading un- 
til the last inning and then losing 
in extra innings 4-3. 

Lock Haven scored first when 
Clarion committed two errors in 
the first inning and a single by 
Jim Reeser produced a run. Jim 
Racchini hit a home run to deep 
left field to tie the score at 1-1. 
Lock Haven came right back with 
a run in the third inning on a 
single and another Clarion error. 
Clarion's Jim Racchini again tied 
the score with a homer into the 
centerfield stands. The Golden 
Eagles took the lead in the fifth 

When Jim Racchini singled, 
went to second on an error and 
scored on a single by John Fed- 
erko, Lock Haven came right 
back and tied the game in t h e 
seventh inning on singles by Don 
Orwig, Jim Johnson and Joe Hoov- 
er. Lock Haven won the game in 
the eighth when Journey doubled 
to left field and scored on a single 
by Allen. 

Good pitching and a tight defense 
helped Lock Haven to victory in 
both games. Outstanding hitting 
by Lock Haven's Jim Reeser and 
Clarion's Jim Racchini provided 
most of the scoring. 

Clarion's next game will be at 
Geneva on Thursday.

Golf Team Cops 
Two Big Wins 
To Start Year 

The Clarion State College golf 
team extended their win skien to 
six Monday, April 22, with victories 
over Indiana and Edinboro. The 
Golden Eagles defeated Indiana 
13-6, and Edinboro 14-5. Senior 
Bill Lechman was the low medal- 
ist with a score of 74. The double 
victory moves the Golden Eagles 
closer to the Western Conference 
title. Last year's team lost only 
one natch, and the 1963 squad 
is out to better last year's record.

Clarion State College, Clarion, Pennsylvania 

Sat., May 11, 1963 

Cathy Flanigan 
Is New Miss CSC 

"I was very happy and proud that the judges thought that 
I was worthy of representing the College," said Catherine 
Flanigan, winner of the Miss CSC title for 1963-64. 

Miss Flanigan, a senior in ele- 
mentary education from East Bra- 
dy, represented her sorority, Sig- 
ma Sigma Sigma in the pageant. 
Cathy, whose desire is to pursue a 
career in music after she gradu- 
ates from Clarion, played Fantaisie 
Impromptu by Chopin for the tal- 
ent competition. 

In the gown competition, Cathy 
wore a pale blue chiffon with a 
flowing chain, and in the swimsuit 
competition, she wore a turquoise 
suit with a V-front. 

Cathy's college activities include 
Tri Sigma sorority, Madrigal sing- 
ers, and piano accompanist for 
college musical events. She recent- 
ly played the score of Brigadoon, 
the drama-music production at 
Clarion. The new Miss CSC also 
gives piano lessons to area child- 

After Bob Avery, master of cere- 
monies, announced Miss Flanigan 
as winner of the pageant, she was 
crowned by Loretta Kidd, pageant 
director, and presented with a rose 
bouquet from Darrel Sheraw, stu- 
dent senate president. 

This honor entitles Cathy to coun- 
ty and state competition for the 
eventual selection of Miss Ameri- 
ca. Before the selection of Cathy 
Brown, first runnerup, and Kathy 
Benish, second runner-up, S i x 
coeds were chosen as finalists.

Rho; Mary Lou Mouer, Phi Sig- 
ma Epsilon, Michalene Zabec, Del- 
ta Zeta; Kathy Benish, Theta Chi; 
Melissa Rosensteel, College Band, 
and Cathy Flanigan, Tri Sigma. 
Judging the contest were Mr. 
and Mrs. Gurs of Brookville, Mr. 

and Mrs. Thomas Stauffer of 
Brookville, and Mr. Thaddeus 
Droast of Clarion.

Four Clarion Students Win 
Graduate Assistants/tips 

Four Clarion seniors have re- 
ceived assistantships to further 
their studies. 

Robert A. Farrell has been a- 
warded an assistantship leading 
to the M.S. degree in Physical 
Geography at the University of Ok- 
lahoma, Norman, Oklahoma. This 
assistantship offers a stipend plus 
the waiver of out of state tuition 
and entails his teaching six hours 
of a freshman course in geography 
while taking twelve hours of grad- 
uate courses each semester. 

Mr. Farrell, after graduating 
from Bradford Area High School, 
served three years in the Army 
Corps of Engineers. He then en- 
listed in the U. S. Navy and served 
for 20 years, retiring with the 
rank of Chief Petty Officer. Mr. 
Farrell's interest in physical geo- 
graphy began in the Navy, where 
he served for five years as an 
Arctic weather observer in Alaska 
as well as serving in various parts 
of the world as a weather fore- 
caster. His formal schooling has 
been received from The Citadel,

Special Ed. Students 
Attend Conference 

Five Special Education students 
from Clarion State College were 
accompanied by Kenneth G. Vayda, 
the college's Director of Special 
Education, to the international con- 
ference of the Council for Excep- 
tional Children in Philadelphia last 
week. This mammoth conference, 
attended by thousands of special 
educators from all parts of the 
world, consisted of symposiums, 
seminars and informal gatherings 
of persons with diverse interests 
in the various types of exceptional 
children. There were also displays 
and demonstrations of aids and 
equipment which have been de- 
veloped to serve this rapidly ex- 
panding field of education. 


The students attending this con- 
ference included Carol Watson, Sa- 
ra Willoughby, Ronald Copenhav- 
er, Martin Prytherch, and William 
Schall, all of whom are preparing 
to become teachers of children with 
retarded mental development. 
They met with college students 
studying special education in all 
parts of the United States and the 
valuable information which they 
gained at this conference will be 
shared by them in classes with 

other special education students.

Editorially Speaking 

Motivation is one of the key promises of our shimmering, 
madly moving American society. We are taught that when 
we shall teach that we should strive to motivate our students, 
and each of us, to be sure, has spent confusing moments trying 
to probe and determine his own motivation. Motivation, mo- 
tivation, motivation — say it out loud. It sounds like some kind 
of wierd chant, doesn't it? Like a mental piston driving us 
onward, onward, onward. In fact, the true American to prop- 
erly prepare himself to face the new day should leap out of 
bed, stand before his mirror, and mutter as he rubs the sleep 
out of his eyes, that magic, golden chant. 

Well, rinky-dink. Here's one person who enjoys engaging 
in activities without thinking of being properly motivated. I 
enjoy romping through the springtime woods for the sheer 
delight of it, unconscious that I may be motivated by excess 
physical energies or by some fool mental desire to escape from 
a mad, hostile society. If I see a rotten stump and want to 
kick it, I do so, without pausing afterward to wonder with a 
guilty blush why. But if I were to be asked by a companion 
why I kicked the stump, you can be sure that I should be re- 
minded of the necessity of being motivated, and that I should 
probably reply that I was checking to see if the stump con- 
tains some rare species of termes, tarmes, termitis. And, of 
course, to show that I am a good American citizen who re- 
cognizes the importance of motivation, I should, in turn, ask 
the questioner what motivated him to ask the question. And 
he will reply that he is preparing a thesis on the motivation of 

I'm not decrying the necessity of motivation. It is, of 
course, quite important if we are to realize our lifetime goals. 
I simply am trying to say a word for sheer, exhilarating, aim- 

Now I've done it; I've told you what motivated me to 
write this article!

age from Jack Kerouac's The 
Dharma Bums. This novel is pur- 
ported to give a good picture of the 
beat generation and of Zen Budd- 
hism, but I seriously doubt if either 
would claim it. 

Amid the drunkenness of the 
beats and the do-nothingness of 
the Zen Buddhists, the reader may 
(or may not) get the idea that the 
hero, Japhy Ryder, and his 
staunch follower, Ray Smith, 
actually Jack Kerouac, are revolt- 
ing against a vaguely depicted 
"modern society." Ray Smith 
describes the modern society he de- 
tests in this way: "... walk some 
night on a suburban street and 
pass house after house on both 
sides of the street each with the 


Editor, The Call: 

A very recent letter in this 
column made various charges 
which are unfounded. The Soviet 
Union is not holding 5,000 U. S. 
servicemen as prisoners! This 
whispering charge is made from 
time to time by the right-wing 
elements who seem to harbor the 
terrible fear that the two super- 
powers will slowly learn to live 
with one another and permit the 
human race to survive. No respon- 
sible figure in government or world 
affairs has taken this charge with 
sufficient seriousness to bother 
denying it. 

Senator Kuchel, Republican of 
California, said of the "fright ped- 
dlers" that "it is disgusting to find 
self-appointed saviors preying pro- 
fitably and psychotically on t h e 
fears of Americans in the name 
of anti-Communism." 

Much additional space was de- 
voted to "Soviet slavery," seem- 
ingly in an effort to stir even great- 
er hatred toward other peoples. 
However, to see the matter in 
some historical perspective one 
must recognize that slavery is not 
the least bit new to mankind, nor 
is it limited to the Communist 
bloc. Even to this day the Ameri- 
can Indian and Negro would find 
it difficult to define his situation 
as one of honest freedom. Much 
Latin America and some of o u r 
allies do not know freedom. 

The group has the right to speak, 
but let it be factual, objective, 
consistent with history, and let it 
be aware of the consequences to 

Great antagonists of the past 
have slowly resolved their con- 
flicts. We are no less competent, 
and unless successful we shall all 
perish together; a slavery far 
greater than any that man can 
imagine. This will come if under- 
standing, reason, and objectively 
prevail. Mass incineration of men, 
women, and even our innocent 

children will result if emotionalism, 
fear, promotion of hatred, and defi- 
nition in all-blacks and all-whites is 
to rule. 

As was recently pointed out in 
this very publication by a distin- 
guished European visitor, the 
American people are overly ob- 
sessed by fear and anti-Commun- 
ism. Many profound foreign vis- 
itors have so concluded. Psycholog- 
ists explain this by saying that 
it is the scapegoat we use for fail- 
ure to solve the vast problems of 
a new, complicated, and difficult 
world. This is not an age for the 
shrill cry. 



Editor, The Call: 

Articles in recent issues of The 
Call have brought to mind a let- 
ter, written by an individual who 
wished to remain unknown to the 
campus in general, which was pub- 
lished in The Call for Dec. 15, 
1962. This letter was a painfully 
obvious attempt to discredit one 
John Noble, but not only this, in 
asking that such programs be 
omitted from the cultural life of 
Clarion, the writer of that letter 

was suggesting the limitation of 
free speech and the promotion of 
an intellectual vacuum to take the 
place of an intelligent and inform- 
ed public. 

The writer complained of Mr. 
Noble's "contradictory logic," yet 
reveals that he was able to glean 
the central thought from that 
which was presented. It is indeed 
a rude awakening to discover that 
we here in America have more 
governmental ownership of busi- 
ness than existed under Hitler in 
Germany. Today there are 700 
government-owned corporations in 
the U.S.A. that are split into 3,000 
companies and 19,000 businesses, 
while under Hitler's socialist gov- 
ernment in Germany there were 
but 17 government-owned business- 
es. Doesn't the public deserve the 
right to know that their republic 
is fast degenerating into a social- 
istic society? What thinking person 
would ask for Hitlerism in Amer- 

Today we ask for governmental 
grants for each thing that we can- 
not find an easy method of fi- 
nancing. We ask for security, not 
realizing that we must pay for

lamplight of the living room, shin- 
ing golden, and inside the little 
blue square of the television, each 
living family riveting its attention 
on probably one show; nobody talk- 
ing; silence in the yards; dogs 
barking at you because you pass 
on human feet instead of on 
wheels." What Kerouac is scorn- 
ing is conformity in the so-called 
"modern society," but let us see 
what he has to replace it. 

The "rucksack revolution" is his 
answer to the dilemma of the tele- 
vision-geared America. "Think of 
millions of guys all over the world 
with rucksacks on their backs 
tramping around the back country 
and hitchhiking and bringing the 
word down to everybody." But, 
Kerouac failed to define "the 
word." In short, one may gather 
that "the word" is "nirvana," the 
state of do-nothingness considered 
the ultimate in Zen Buddhism. To 
achieve this, one must sit in full 
lotus posture and meditate, wait- 
ing for a "Transcendental Visit." 
One disregards the world and life; 
they are unimportant. What one 
strives for is a unity with the 
universe and a stopping of all 
thinking. One merely becomes a 
vegetable. To plomb the depths of 
Ray Smith's meditations, note this 
passage: "But I just sat around in 
the grass doing nothing, or writing 
haikus, or watching an old vulture 
circling round the hill. 'Must be 
something dead around here,' I 
figured." This is Kerouac's answer 
to television. 

Yes, just think of millions of 
guys aimlessly roaming the coun- 
try, bringing the gospel of Zen Bud- 
dhism to everyone. No one works; 
everyone slings a rucksack on his 
back and climbs the nearest moun- 
tain. Or, perhaps, everyone goes 
home to his mother, who, accord- 
ing to Ray Smith, has been sup- 
porting him all this time, to med- 
itate about the relationship between 
raindrops and ecstasy. This would 
present a few minor problems, 
however. For instance, if everyone 
is climbing mountains and medi- 
tating, who is going to manufac- 
ture rucksacks? Obviously no one, 
since it is part of Smith's credo 
to do nothing, and this includes 
making rucksacks. Another small 
point is hitchhiking. 

If everyone wants to "hitch" a 
ride in a car, who is going to own 

one? It is evident that someone 
must have a car to "hitch" a 
ride in, for according to Ray 
Smith, the ideal way to travel is in 
a "borrowed" car. A lesser ob- 
stacle is finding food and clothing, 
since no good Dharma Bum would 
actually work. The thirty-three- 
year-old Ray Smith has solved this 
problem rather well, however; he 
subsists on the allowance his ag- 
ing mother doles out to him. Of 
course, when one spends most of 
this money on the necessities 
(wine, for instance), he has very 
little left for pleasures like hunting 
through the bins of the Good 
Will Stores for fifty-cent shirts. 
Perhaps the most difficult of all 
these problems is obtaining a pair 
of genuine juju prayer beads to 
pray for all mankind. Ray Smith 
was fortunate, however, because 
his idol, Japhy, had two pairs, 
and gave him one. But one cannot 
use the beads without knowing the 
Zen Buddhist vocabulary. One 
must be able to use such terms 
as "bhikku," "haikus," "Bodhisatt- 
va," "Dharmakya," and "sutra" 
fluently. If he cannot, he will not 
be admitted to the weekly "yab- 
yum" ritual, imported directly 
from the Tibetan temples. These 
then are just a few of the minor 
obstacles Jack Kerouac would 
have to overcome if he wished to 
initiate a "rucksack revolution." 

The above are by far not the 
only faults in "The Dharma 
Bums," but space permits me only 
to mention others. Kerouac has no 
idea of structure or of plot; his 
book falls loosely into three adven- 
tures: climbing a mountain, hitch- 
hiking home, and living on Desola- 
tion Peak. He builds a facade of 
knowledge by using foreign terms, 
some of which have been men- 
tioned. He can be called a pseudo- 
intellectual. And last, Kerouac 
finds it hard to think in. a straight 
line; he is illogical. As evidence of 
this, note the faults in his pro- 
posed "rucksack revolution." As 
a professor has said of this novel, 
"Its only saving quality is the 
description of the mountains."

Local Fraternity Becomes 
Beta Omicron Chapter of 
Theta Xi National Fraternity 

After a year of colonization, a lo- 
cal Clarion State College fratern- 
ity, Theta Xi Alpha, becomes the 
Beta Omicron chapter of Theta Xi 
National Fraternity. The chapter 
house is located at 36 Greenville 
Avenue, across from Davis Hall. 

The fraternity house occupied by 
Theta Xi is owned by a unique 
non-profit organization, The Theta 
Xi Education Foundation of Pitts- 
burgh. The Foundation, formed in 
1956, devotes itself exclusively to 
educational programs. All of its of- 
ficers are volunteer workers who 
serve without pay. 

The Foundation received nation- 
al publicity several years ago, 
when multi-millionaire, Otto G. 
Richter, changed his will just be- 
fore his death, to give the Founda- 
tion a $225,000 bequeath. The in- 
come from the Foundation's invest- 
ments is used for scholarships and 
special educational grants. The 
Foundation is now coordinating 
education programs at Carnegie 
Tech and Indiana State College in 
addition to Clarion State. 

Theta Xi National Fraternity 
was founded at Rensselaer Poly- 
technic Institute, Troy, New York, 
on April 29, 1864. In 1962, Kappa 
Sigma Kappa merged with Theta 
Xi as a means of a more com- 
plete fulfillment of their mission in 
the fraternity movement. This 
merger has increased the mem- 
bership and strengthened the fra- 
;ernity throughout the United 
States to a total of seventy active 

The purpose of Theta Xi is to pro- 
vide a college home environment 
for its active members in which 
fellowship and alumni guidance 
lead to wholesome mental, moral, 
physical, and spiritual growth. To 
that end Theta Xi actively supj- 
ports and augments college and 
community efforts to make indi- 
vidual members more mature and 
chapter groups more useful units 
of society. 

The Coat of Arms of Theta Xi 
can be described as follows: A 
shield of azure blue, diagonally 
crossed by a bend of silver, which 
lies between a pair of balances and 
a sword arranged crosswise, above, 
and an open book or Bible below, 
all of silver, the bend being 
charged with three blue upright 
crescents. Below the shield is the 
motto scroll carrying the public 
motto Juncti Juvant and the Arab- 
ic numerals 62 on the left and 94 
on the right. Above the shield sits 
an esquire's helmet of silver and 
a unicorn's head in natural, or boy, 
color, with its severed part jag- 
ged, as having been forcibly torn 
from the animal. The unicorn's 
head rests upon a wreath composed 
of eight twists of alternate blue 
and silver, from which flows the 

The badge of Theta Xi consists 
of the Greek letter Theta superim- 
posed upon the Greek letter Xi, the 
geometric centers coinciding. The 
elliptical part of the Theta is set 
with twenty graduated pearls. A 
single stone, either ruby or dia- 
mond, is set in the bar of the

which won second prize in the 
Homecoming Parade. "Co-Exist- 
ence" was the theme of our snow 
sculpture, which also won second 
prize. Throughout the year several 
co-eds have represented Theta Xi. 
They are: Sandra Hennon, Home- 

coming Queen; Sandra Trehar, of 
Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority, our 
representative in Winter Capades; 
and Ann Planker, of Sigma Sigma 
Sigma Sorority, our representative 
in the Miss C. S. C. contest. The 
fraternity has also taken an active 
part in Greek Sing, Spring Carni- 
val, and Intramural Sports Pro- 

The fraternity advisors are Dr. 
Lawrence L. Penny, head of the 
Psychology Department, and Dr. 
Elbert R. Moses, Jr., head of the 
Speech Department. 

The weekend activities begin on 
Thursday and Friday evenings, 
when the brothers travel to the Be- 
ta Mu chapter at Indiana State 
College for individual initiation. 
The installation of the Clarion chap- 
ter, and the dedication of the 
house, which will be named Otto 
G. Richter Hall, will take place on 
Saturday. Following the dedication 
will be a dinner and formal dance 
held at Pine Crest Country Club 
in Brookville for the guests and 
brothers of Theta Xi. Entertain- 
ment will be provided by Joe

that security with our freedom. 
We are asking for a governmental 
system which will penalize indi- 
vidual initiative and will hopeless- 
ly bury the people under a burden 
of taxes. It is indeed strange that 
the blessing of deficit spending is 
burdening our people with an a- 
mount of interest that amounts to 
over one-tenth of our national bud- 
get. Thomas Jefferson said, "To 
preserve our independence, we 
must not let our rulers load us 
with perpetual debt... If we can pre- 
vent the Government from wasting 
the labors of the people, under the 
pretense of caring for them, they 
must become happy." Woodrow 
Wilson said, "All any American 
should desire is a free field and 
no favors." This doesn't sound like 
the boys who would secure for us 
the "blessings" of a welfare state. 

Today we cry that our state de- 
partment has no certain pattern for 

diplomacy. We follow a creed of 
expediency, not realizing that this 
idea got us into trouble following 
the Second World War. We had 
recognized Soviet Russia's govern- 
ment to be the honest government 
of the people in the 1930's and thus 
gave the Communists a second 
wind, all the v/hile fully knowing of 
their purges and blood baths. We

Banquet Held 
For Athletes 

The sixth annual All-Sports ban-

held on Saturday, May 4, at 7 
p.m. in the College Dining Room. 

The banquet's purpose is to give 
recognition to the members of all 
intercollegiate athletic groups at 
Clarion. This includes football, bas- 
ketball, baseball, wrestling, tennis,

wrestling team, who attained a 2.82 
cumulative average. In addition, 
an award was presented to senior 
Dave Caslow for his fine wrestling 

Featured speakers for the ban-

the coaches of the various varsity 
sports. Dr. Donald Peirce, head of 
the physical science department, 
served as toastm aster.

Eagles Continue 
Winning Streak 

The Clarion State Golden Eagles 
opened the 1963 season with vic- 
tories over Slippery Rock and Ge- 
neva on Wednesday, April 17th. The 
Golden Eagles defeated Slippery 
Rock 12V2 - 6V2, and beat Geneva 
14 - 5. 

Terry Kelsch was low medalist 
for Clarion with a score of 74. Bob 
Byler was low medalist of the 
match with a score of 71. Bill 
Mchean was the low medalist for 
Geneva with an 80. 

On Friday, April 19th, the Gold- 
en Eagles golf team added the 
names of Grove City and Gannon 
to the list of the conquered. Clarion 
defeated Grove City 10-9, and Gan- 
non 10V2 - 8M>. The determining 
factor in the Grove City match 
was low team medal which gave 
Clarion the match. Low medalist 
of the match was Joe Walker of

up was Clarion's Al Istanish who 
had a score of 79.

Clarion State College baseball

permitted them to take over La- 
tvia, Lithuania, and Estonia with- 
out even a protest. Yet God's 
word plainly tells us not to have 
fellowship with murders. We have 
reaped the results of our folly in 
Korea and will reap it again if we 
do not do as John Noble advised. 
His advice that we submit our- 
selves to God was not ill-given, 
for if we serve God we will have a 
national purpose and will have a 
guidebook to follow, the Bible. 
Then our government will be cer- 
tain to have a guideline for diplo- 
macy and it will be right. Mr. No- 
ble's program was not one of hate- 
mongering, but it apparently got 
under someone's skin. Could it be 
that someone knew that they were 
rebels against God and society?

joyed the blessings of our govern- 
mental system, would be so un- 
grateful as to speak out against 
the principles which have obtained 
these blessings? 

Thank you, 


Just before the end of a college 
education it is not unusual for a 
student to start pondering his fu- 
ture opportunities. Among the 
areas to come under serious con- 
sideration, pay is probably the fore- 
most in the student's mind. Cer- 
tainly there are two other factors 
involved, location and working con- 
ditions, to name two. But the im- 
portance of these factors vary in 
each individual according to his 
own sense of values. Regardless 
of this, pay holds as high a 
priority as anything among the 
general student body here at Clar- 

Investigating the area of teach- 
er's pay in Pennsylvania can be a 
sobering and shocking experience. 
As an example, truck drivers for 
a nearby firm are paid twice as 
much as starting teachers. Some 
get as much as twelve thousand 
dollars a year. 

Immediately one begins to re- 
view mentally how American val- 
ues regressed to this level. The 
level that a college education, dur- 
ing which four potential years of 
earning power are invested, does 
not raise a man's value but de- 
creases it by one half if we as- 
sume that driving a truck repre- 
sents a somewhat middle class 
job. The obvious answer is that un- 
ions accomplished this for trucking 
labor. These organizations elevated 
truck driving to its present eco- 
nomic status above teachers, ac- 
countants, junior executives and 
many other occupations requiring 
more than just average intelli- 
gence and good manual dexterity. 
The next obvious conclusion is that 
it can be done for teaching if 
teachers are willing to organize. 

To gain further insight on teach- 
ers' unions I interviewed several in- 
structors and a student on this 
campus. I asked them how they 
felt about teachers' unions and 
mentioned the truckers' salary as 
a point of comparison. 

Dr. Helen Knuth, professor in 
the Social Studies Department, once 
belonged to a teachers' union and 
therefore could speak from exper- 
ience. This particular union was a 
local member of the American Fed- 
eration of Labor. It was organ- 
ized to aid in getting school bonds 
approved. It succeeded in this, but 
did little in the way of salary im- 
provement. Dr. Knuth said, "I 
would prefer that any union or- 
ganization representing teachers 
not have affiliations with any spec- 
ial class interest. It should be 
made up of teachers both in the 
general membership and in the 
administration." As far as the com- 
parison of salaries, she was not 
sure that unions could rectify the 
situation. She felt that the discrep- 
ancy in pay was a direct result of 
a "strange sense of value" preva- 
lent today. She hinted that pro- 

gress could be made through pro- 
fessional organizations such as the 
National Educators' Association. 

Dr. Hugh Winston Park, profes- 
sor in the English Department, 
felt- that teachers' unions would re- 
strict teaching and limit objectiv- 
ity in the classroom. As an ex- 
ample he pointed out the possibil- 
ity of a union muzzling a teacher 
for teaching about gangsterism in 
some unions. When asked what he 
thought about the idea of teach- 
ers' unions, he replied, "I think 
they stink. S-T-I-N-K, stink!" 

Dr. Samuel Wilhelm, professor in 
the Social Studies Department, 
feels that legally, teachers, as pub 
he employees, should not be al- 
lowed to join unions because, after 
all, it's public money that pays 
teachers. If unions are ever to get 
teachers organized it will only be 
after the public has become edu- 
cated to accept this. I think that 
would take a long time." 

Andrew Adamchik, senior stu- 
dent, thought that unions could 
work in the teaching field. He 
quickly pointed out that he was 
reared in a pro-union atmosphere 
and therefore was possibly biased 
by that indoctrination. "I have 
seen the good done by unions," he 
said, "and I am aware of some of 
the pitfalls of unionism. However, 
if a correctly organized and man- 
aged union can aid teachers in at- 
taining their just economic status, 
then I am for it. By a correctly 
organized union, I mean one which 
effects a separation of labor and 
management. This would be much 
more functional than the NEA set- 
up which integrates the adminis- 
tration with the rank and file 

Anyone considering the value of 
a teachers' union must face some 
realities. Unions could and would 
restrict objectivity in the public 
school The text boeks of the future 
are sure to contain material show- 
ing some of the damage done by 
labor unions to our economic well 
being. Would teachers be allowed 
to teach this? Any organization 
dedicated and created for the par- 
pose of dictating labor demands 
would be foolish to permit its mem- 
bers to teach material detrimental 
to its basic cause. Only extreme 
naivete permits one to believe that 
a teachers' union would be any 
different that any other union, or 
that it would be free from the 
type of union leadership now dis- 
played by our major unions. 

The teacher salary situation will 
not right itself. We are losing able 
teachers to other fields and failing 
to attract new talent because of 
the second class economic status 
in effect. The theory that teachers 
should be self-sacrificing creatures 
of intense dedication does nothing 
to ease the problem. There are 
not enough self-sacrificing, talent- 
ed persons to fill our schools with 
competent teachers. This being 
the case, we must rely on those 
qualified persons who include eco- 
nomic prosperity in their defini- 
tion of happiness. To get these 
people we must offer them what 
they want, otherwise we will fill 
our teaching positions with incom- 
petents, or fail to fill them at all. 

The N.E.A. has made some pro- 
gress toward securing better pay 
for teachers, but it has been slow- 
er than the progress made by the 
general economy, and therefore it 
is not progress at all. This leaves 
the overly dynamic unions. Dr. 
Wilhelm said that the public needs 
educated on this subject. This 
is the solution. 

We must act individually as an 
unorganized union. Each teacher 
must do his own collective bar- 
gaining; he must show his worth. 
He must pass students from h i s 
class with the knowledge that edu- 
cation is progress as sure as free- 
ways and split level homes. We 
must graduate students whose atti-

The Student Pennsylvania State 
Education Association closed its 
school year with the final business 
meeting in April. 

In addition to sponsoring the Sat- 
urday night record hops, the club 
has been busy organizing a PSEA 
at Venango Campus and an FTA 
at Clarion High School. 

On April 19-20, 17 delegates and 
one advisor attended the student 
PSEA Convention at Penn State. 
At this convention stcte officers 
were elected and regional meet- 
ings were held in addition to many 
other educational events. 

Congratulations are in order for 
the 1962-63 officers. We also wish 
the 1963-64 officers 'the best of 
luck" throughout the coming year. 
They are: president, Frank Stew- 
art; vice president, Lois Petrovich; 
secretary, Linda DeJoseph; and 
treasurer, Connie Woolslayer. 

These new officers are already 
scheduling an eventful and educa-

Silver Dollar Week Hailed 
As Great Success 

Seen many silver dollars around 
town? Well, if you have, they were 
all part of the first annual "Silver 
Dollar - Week" sponsored by the 
Circle K Club of Clarion State Col- 
lege. The purpose behind this 
unique activity was to give t h e 
Clarion merchants an idea of how 
much money the students at CSC 
spend downtown in one week. 

Circle K Club, with permission 
from the local Chamber of Com- 
merce, staged a "Silver Dollar 
Week" during which the college 
students exchanged their paper 
dollars for silver ones before going 
downtown. Wondering how many 
silver dollars were given in ex- 

change during last week? The 
grand total is nearly $4,000. Need- 
less to say, the project was quite 
successful both in the amount of 
money exchanged and in demon- 
stration of its purpose to the people 
of the Clarion area; and we are 
hoping that in years' to come this 
project will serve to remind the 
Clarion merchants that the students 
at CSC are a very big part of their 
retnil customers. 

Circle K Club is sponsored by 
Mr. Walter Hart, Director of Ad- 
missions, and Mr. Joseph Shaw, 
Assistant Director of Admissions 
at Clarion State College.
